Acupuncture may provide an alternative to cosmetic surgery for treating wrinkles and sagging skin, according to the Dove Clinic for Integrated Medicine.
According to Dr Silvia Bretschneider, a specialist at the Dove Clinic, the latest acupuncture techniques can be used to gently rejuvenate the skin.
''Regular treatments can give skin the elasticity and moisture it needs to gently fend off future signs of ageing,'' Dr Bretschneider revealed.
''When combined with lifestyle changes, acupuncture can be a great aid in keeping the skin looking younger for longer.''
The expert claimed that acupuncture is "excellent" at reducing wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.
The Dove Clinic for Integrated Medicine offers a range of complementary and alternative approaches, including reflexology, reiki, ancient Thai massage, mindfulness based cognitive therapy, and treatments for nutritional disorders and allergies.
Practitioners operate from sites in Hampshire and London's Wimpole Street.
